BOOK - British Home Children: Their Stories
Compiled by the British Isles Family History Society of Ottawa (BIFHSGO)
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2010 (CD 2013)
The compiler of this book, the British Isles Family History Society (BIFHSGO), has been a long-time leader in researching and sharing information about Home Children. Beginning in 1996, BIFHSGO began extracting the names of Home Children from the records of Library and Archives Canada (LAC). To date, over 100,000 names have been extracted from passenger lists and other records by BIFHSGO volunteers, and the information has been provided to LAC for incorporation into a Home Children Database and made available online to the general public. The Middlemore Homes Index that lists children brought to Canada during the period 1872–1886 was developed by BIFHSGO volunteers and is posted on the Society’s website.
To commemorate The Year of the British Home Child, BIFHSGO has assembled a collection of stories prepared by the researchers about the lives of some of these these children — their ancestors — that demonstrate the strength of character, sense of purpose and good humour that enabled them to overcome adversity and contribute a positive and lasting legacy to their new country.
The stories reflect the contributors’ recollections of their ancestors and the times and conditions in which they lived. Inevitably there will be inconsistencies in details, and readers are encouraged to accept the stories in the spirit in which they are presented.

FREE SHIPPING to Canada & USA for this item
Four times magnification of both image and light. The Magnabrite “LGL”(Light Gathering Loupe) is a superbly crafted, solid acrylic 4X magnifier with a unique characteristics. It actually intensifies the light that passes through it, making the magnified subject clearer and nearly four times brighter.
There are no bulbs or batteries in the LGL; the power behind its clarity and magnification is innovative optical engineering and precision lens grinding. What’s more, this North American-made loupe is very affordably priced. The Magnabrite® 4X Light Gathering Magnifier is made of crystal-clear solid acrylic, precision machined and polished in the same manner as camera lenses and other fine optics. The base of the magnifier is slightly concave to reduce the risk of scratching or damaging the lens surface.
Other look-alike magnifiers in the same price range are hollow, molded plastic and do not offer the same features or quality as the Magnabrite® Light Gathering Magnifier. Ideal for family historians, designers, architects, graphic artists, photographers, crafters, model builders, collectors, hobbyists, and genealogists. Has also been proven to be a valuable tool for people experiencing the early stages of macular degeneration.
